Purchasing crystal chandeliers online is a common option for decorators because it allows for a greater selection of sizes and styles. When purchasing online, it’s important to consider the placement of the chandelier with regards to its size. Here are some things to keep in mind when making a purchase online:

The Room

Crystal chandeliers are often found in foyers, hallways or in dining rooms. Though you may be tempted to go for a larger chandelier, it may overwhelm a room. If you get one too small, it may not have the impact you are hoping for. Measure the room you are placing the chandelier in and as a rule of thumb, make sure it is 4 feet away from any wall in the room.

Over a Dining Table

If you plan to position the chandelier over a table, still incorporate the rule of 4 feet from each wall. Also keep in mind that the ornament should be minimum 30 inches from the top of the table. This number does not include the added inches at the top of the chandelier where the fixture must be installed to the ceiling.
